Sparkling Mariani Vineyard Gamay Noir 2020

I love these ancestrale method wines. So unique and a little unpredictable I guess? Lots of cranberry and red current on the nose... On the palate, that cranberry develops into maybe a richer raspberry, but this doesn't ever really get sweet. I like the dryness here... And the acidity makes the appies on the patio pop. This is always a fun brand and I look forward to each new vintage! — 3 days ago

Naramata Bench Sémillon 2018

Lemon and grapefruit on the nose. Continuing to the palate, there's additionally honeydew, yellow apple, and a walk through my herb garden. This is an Okanagan semillon that I really enjoy... I've put some Okanagan semillon in the cellar over the years, and one day I'll see how they do with age on them and we'll see what fighting over vineyards really yields. — 3 months ago
